Airport transfers
and arrivals

Your daughter is in safe hands

Ensuring safe passage

Transfers between Heathrow Airport and Heathfield School are organised each Saturday (Sunday if Overseas Boarding Camp) of the course. Each transfer costs £70 which must be paid in advance. The student will be met and transferred by Heathfield staff or a school driver by minibus or car. 

Airport Arrivals

If possible, flight arrivals should be between 06.00 and 19.00.

All girls travelling alone are met at the Customs Exit in their Heathrow airport terminal by staff and school drivers who wear Heathfield T-shirts and carry Heathfield signs and identification. Girls travelling as Unaccompanied Minors will be handed over by the airline staff directly to Heathfield staff. The Unaccompanied Minor service must be booked and paid for with the airline when the ticket is purchased. We strongly recommend using this service for younger and inexperienced travellers.

Heathfield is only about 45 minutes from Heathrow airport and staff will escort students back to school where the registration and welcome procedure will begin.

Arrivals at other airports and transfers on other days are available at an extra cost.

Independent Arrivals

We welcome family and friends who want to accompany a student to Heathfield and will be pleased to offer you a tour of the school. You will also be invited to join your daughter for lunch or supper.

Airport transfer departures

If possible, flight departures should be between 09.00 and 19.00

For girls flying home, we take students to the airport by minibus or car. Our staff help the girls to check in at their Heathrow terminal and then accompany them to passport control. Girls travelling as Unaccompanied Minors are handed over to airline staff after check-in.

Departures from other airports and transfers on other days are available at an extra cost.

What the parents say

Thank you for making it always so magic. Thank you so much for making our daughter so happy each summer.

Flor - France

I have been sending both my daughters for years now and my eldest is now ready and excited to join Summer Camp.

Tamara - Jordan

My daughter had the most wonderful experience, made lots of friends from all over the world, participated in interesting activities and learnt her first English sentences.

Teresa - Spain

The girls have a great network. I am so pleased to see the progress and networking capability she has built at Heathfield summer school.

Erdem - Turkey

When I first sent my daughter to Heathfield I was cautious until I found out that the school’s priority was safety. I was very happy to find out the nurse was on call 24 hours a day.
